Celebrations with Hickory Farms…

Holiday Gift Guide Picks – Easy Gifts for Everyone

I have memories of the Hickory Farms gift boxes since my early childhood. Summer sausages and cheeses, little jars of mustard and foil wrapped candy strawberries. Office party nostalgia. And since my mom worked in real estate, we’re talking a lot of Hickory Farms!

I know you remember receiving Hickory Farms at some point in your lives, and the fun of carefully opening and incorporating the delicious items into our holiday traditions. It’s such a classic holiday gift and memory!

Did you know Hickory Farms has been around for 60 years? That’s 60 years of delicious gift boxes. You can’t get more classic than a beautifully packaged box or basket of signature sausages and savory cheeses.

My husband spied the box the moment it arrived, a few days before Thanksgiving. We opened it and the first thing he saw was the summer sausage. I had to tell him that as delicious as everything looked, he had to wait. It took a little bit of convincing, because that sausage and cheese looked REALLY GOOD.

A few days later I indulged him while I prepared Thanksgiving Dinner. Nothing says holiday cheer like a spread of goodies from Hickory Farms…

The gouda spread like butter, no kidding..

Our first round was delicious. So tasty. The gouda? It spread like butter. As in, we used a butter knife to slice it. And it was sooooo good. Paired with some summer sausage and crackers it was the perfect pre Thanksgiving Dinner snack.

The thing is, since it’s just us and the kids, the gift we received from Hickory Farms was enough for our family for more than just one serving, so, later that weekend, we enjoyed MORE summer sausage and cheddar cheese.

it's really good with garlic bread too.

Hickory Farms gives back as well. Once again this holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 from each Party Planner gift box sold to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, a national nonprofit that is working to end childhood hunger in America. In addition, Hickory Farms provides free shipping on select products to APO/FPO military addresses across the globe, allowing loved ones overseas to share in holiday traditions. Now that’s something I can stand behind.

I’m checking out Hickory Farms for some of my holiday gifts. You can’t beat the $3 flat rate shipping or the incredible selection of gifts for any budget, including a fabulous collection of gifts under $30! Which means you can send gifts to distant relatives or even your local friends without breaking the budget.

Thanks Hickory Farms, for making my Thanksgiving a little yummier!
